Cathedrals & carvings

such a grey & dreary day it was when mr o decided we needed a distraction
so off on long travels across the scottish border to the city of Carlisle
& its wondrous gothic cathedral tucked away there
**
innocent angels & roguish gargoyles

creeping vines topping sandstone pillars
such realistic alabaster figures
** fantastical carved wooden creatures

and above all,
painted stars on a ceiling you could live with forever
